First SB for weeks last night, plus two more runs and 3 for 6. He's making it tough to leave him benched.

Just hit a nice strong double to deep right field in his first at bat. I think he is close to turning the corner....

Looks like Delmon got the message when they forced him to sit and break his game starting streak. He has been doing much better and I am starting him over Joey Votto who is slumping a bit now.

Worth noting that all three doubles were well hit to the mid-to-opposite field and fell into space, no near catches. This is just fine for BA and RBI counts but will do nothing for his dearth of homers. I watch Twins games and Delmon has only pulled one hit in the past week or so, IIRC. That hit fell about ten to twenty feet short of the fence for an out. He's unlikely to hit an opposite field HR.

In a situation where there are runners on, Young is going to focus on getting the runners home and ignore HRs. It is the Twins way.

Another HR and 4 RBI's tonight... also inching closer to .300

I'd pick him up if anybody dropped him 8-o

Here's to a great second half Delmon ;-D
